July Fourth Parade


Happy Sunday to you!  I thought I'd pop in and share a few pictures from the July 4th parade!  It is our annual tradition to go to the parade in Montgomery with his side of the family and all the cousins.  We were short a few cousins this year, but the kids had a great time despite all the over 100% temps!  They are all smiles as the got candy for their bags...and the best part was the prade participates that were passing our ice pops!  Definitely ate those fast! And we had our sweet neighbors Elle and Will come too!  Definitely a great way to start the fourth!  PS  I did have a good laugh that Marcel choose his Team GB Olympics shirt to wear to the July 4th parade...has to show his heritage :)!

I also wanted to share a card for this week's Tuesday Trigger.  When I think of poppies, I always think of my nana.  She loves poppies and has painted a ton of gorgeous oil paintings over the years. A simple masked card using PTI Botanical Silhouettes.  I haven't used this set in too long!  Thanks for a great inspiration photo Cath!
